The countdown is on, with less than 2 weeks until Christmas Day! Are you finished shopping yet?
Don’t worry, I’m not either. Although I’m happy to report I’m getting close! My goal is always to be 80% done before Thanksgiving and I accomplished that this year. There are a few names on my list I purposely save until a little later in the month, so I can give a little extra time to find the perfect gift. Last year I didn’t buy Kirk’s present until a week before, because I wasn’t quite sure until then.
To help you check a few more names off your own shopping list, I’m going to be sharing some gift ideas over the coming days! I know this is a common trend this time of year, but I love all the ideas. Hopefully you’ll find a new idea (or two) on my list.
Let’s start with ideas for the fitness folks in your life. Whether they are ready to start a fitness habit or a hard-core fitness fanatic, you can support their goals with a gift that helps them stay healthy, train smarter, or make things more fun!
Fitness Gift List
1. Yurbuds Inspire Headphones ($29.99)
These headphones actually stay put, no matter what I’m doing. I use them most for cardio, where there’s little chance on them getting caught on something and pulled out by the cord. Inexpensive and used to the sweat that comes with a good workout.
2. Jabra Sport Rox Wireless Headphones ($129.99)
These wireless headphones allow you to listen to your music (or audiobooks) during your workout, without being connected to your phone. Since I use a smartphone app to track my workouts, I need my phone close by. Having the freedom to leave my phone on the ground, while I do my next set and listen to my music — that’s fantastic! It’s more comfortable than tucking my phone into my shirt (and probably better for my phone).
The downside is that these don’t stay put in my small ears for cardio workouts, so I use them just for strength. Note: I received these headphones to test and provide my honest feedback. I was not compensated for this review.
3. BlenderBottle GoStak ($12.99)
Taking vitamins and supplements each day means you may be fumbling with a number of bottles every morning. Earlier this year I got a GoStak to divide out several day’s worth at one time. Since then, I got another set for Kirk. I’ve also used the larger ones to bring pre-workout and aminos with me, for evening workouts.

4. Fitmark BOX ($59.99)
Bringing your own meals to work should be part of your fitness plan. I’ve been using my Fitmark BOX for almost a year now and it looks as good as new! I bring 3-4 meals to work with me each day and they all fit in this lunch box, plus room for silverware, a water bottle, and an ice pack.
5. Oakley Urgency Sunglasses ($139.99)
I like to find all-purpose sunglasses that will take me from a long run to a picnic with friends. Functional sunglasses that look good. These Oakley’s have been with me for a few years now and they serve both purposes beautifully.
6. Race Dots ($24.99)
I learned about these on another gift list earlier this year and it’s such a great concept I had to add them to my list. These dots allow you to secure your race bib to your shirt (or jersey) without sticking a pin through your race gear. Two magnets attract together to hold your bib safely in place. Genius!
7. Fitbit Charge ($129.95)
My Fitbit has been attached to my wrist since early November and it’s not going anywhere. The extra motivation to move more when I look down and see a low number of steps helps me. And the satisfaction of meeting my goal for the day is almost silly. Little things like this really do work for me! I’ve also started to use it as a watch, something I haven’t had for over 10 years. Crazy.
8. Trigger Point Performance Foam Roller ($39.99)
Foam rollers allow you to get the benefits of myofascial release at home. This self-myofacial release can help you get rid of adhesions in your muscles and connective tissue, which can help prevent and recover from injuries. This particular model has a variety of widths, which is intended to replicate the feeling of a massage therapist’s hands.
Hopefully you found one new idea for your Christmas shopping list. Or maybe something you want to buy for yourself?
